Have many memories of Hakata Air Force, Navy, and Army military base. Made many friends there while serving my country. The base was handed over to the Japanese while I was there so being a draftee I was given a 6 month early out. I was very lucky to have Hakata as my duty station it could of been a lot worse. My wife came later and we lived off base. Spent two weeks at Camp Drake by Tokyo before departing to Hakata. Thanks for doing this and reviving old memories.

Thanks for keeping some of Brady Air Base Open. Dennis Graham had a great web site until he decided to take it down. I tried my best to supply him with plenty of pictures. The over head view of the base i supplied it when Dennis first state his web site. Although I didn't know many of the Air force guys, i stil enjoyed looking at your web site. Thanks so much.

Thanks for the memories brought on by your photos. I didn't spend much time in Saitosaki except to pass lthrough on the way to the ferry preferring to go to the "big city" of Fuk. I would have re-upped if they would have promised that I could spend the next 16 years in Japan. But things turned out OK anyway.

Thanks for putting together this web site. I really enjoyed it. I help Dennis Graham when he had his web site. I don't know what happened, but one day his web site was gone. I wish I had been able to attend your last reunion. Maybe I will be able to make the next one. I still have alot of the picture that I took while I was there. I furnished the one of the aerial view of the base. That picture was loved by a lot of the guys I knew that were there. Of course, I only knew the army guys. That was one Air Force Guy there that I talked to once. I was down town celebrating making SP5 and got drunk. He was an AP, and could have taken me in. He ask me where I was from, and I told him Macon, Georgia, He said he was from Cumming, GA, and if I would get in a cab and go back to the base, he would let me go. I got him to help me in the cab. Never knew his name. All I knew in was in Feb of 1959. I had some great time at Brady Air Base. Need any more pictures let me know. I have plenty. Of course most of the guys in the pictures are Army. Some are in the Navy, as we had 16 Navy guys attached to us at the 14th US ASA Fld Sta. I also have a movie that I made from some pictures, 8mm movie tapes, and slides. It is 45 minutes long.

Thanks so much

Ben Phillips

Several days ago, I spoke with John (Mike) Miller and he told me that he still has a very good supply of USAFSS Patches that he would like to sell. Because it is a USAFSS Patch, he is willing to sell them to anybody --- you do not have to have been assigned to the 6918th RSM/SS. If you, or somebody that you know, would like to purchase something from Mike, I can help you get in contact with Mike --- just let me know. Bill Spencer (618) 236-3713 POSTED: 26 March 2020.

Wife and i just watched Hakuho win the Kyushu Basho. He takes the tournament with one night to go with a 13-1 record. This is his 43rd title win. I'm sure he will finish up tomorrow night and end up 14-1.

Hi Jim,

It was so nice that you were able to attend the Last Big One. And you are so right - Mini Reunions are great too. Many prefer them. However we find the minis are more personal. Be it 4 or 10 or 50 pople.

I will be available to any one who needs help in locating flight members using the "Final Roster".

And to you my new friend. Stay in touch buddy.
